Guys

Foglights are technically illegal unless you have special permission
from the Transport Office. This letter gives you that "special" permission.

Please print and keep in your vehicle.

I heard the last para. of the letter refers to your certified copy showing the registration of the vehicle is indeed after Oct 14 2002 - when the letter was printed

I guess it means no coloured lenses... like yellow or blue.

But they obviously behind the time still since cars have been coming with yellow fogs for years now, and more recently blue ones

^^ yup :mrgreen:

is really to keep some of those officers who not in the know at bay when they stop you at random. Not a necessity though but could save you some headache. :roll: :roll:

I know that this is a blast from the past but with the recent increase in fines:
Regulation 28(k) Unautorized Lights $750 and Regulation 28 (m)(4) Unathorized Spot/Swivel Light $1000.
1. Can I just install fog lights on my TCE Frontier and have the letter in the vehicle and it is legal.
2. How do I get Autorization if I wanted to to be as happy as wagon r.

(All suggestions must be legal. I not bribing nobody)

Don't know if this point was made before, so apologies if I'm repeating here...


Having been stopped by police in a road block for using fog lights, I was told that you need the letter only if you are using the lights. If your fog lights are off, then you are safe. If your fog lights are on... AND... you get stopped by the police, only then will you need the letter to show that you have permission to use them.

In short, you don't need special permission to have fog lights on your car.... but you do need special permission (i.e. the aforementioned letter) to turn them on.

so do I

but we all know that every police officer in T&T is his own law

so what you get away from I may not and vice versa

as well as it may just be a matter of time till your luck runs out

i just put on a pair of spotties on my rollbar yesterday.

Haven't wired them in yet though.
Planning to get another pair of Hella spotties with the wiring kits, and a set of covers for a 4 lamps.


AFAIK, if it's not on, and if the lamps are covered, you should be ok 2/3r'ds of the time.
But all it takes is one disgruntled @ss of a po-po to spoil the fun.
